How to earn fast XP in Fortnite Season 8

If you've ever been a few tiers short of 100 on the Battle Pass or just missed out on prismatic rewards, here's how you can earn some fast XP in Fortnite to prevent that from happening again!

We'll take you through some ways to get quick XP and even a farming method that many players still use at the end of their sessions.

Farming XP in Fortnite

One of the main ways to earn some fast XP without even having to actively play the game is Creative Farming. You are rewarded with 25,200 XP every 15 minutes that you play in creative modes.


This bonus is awarded up to 5 times meaning 126,000XP can be earned with very little effort. In many cases you can be kicked for inactivity though, so we suggest the following AFK map code to help you stay active: 2258 - 1145 - 5835.

On this map, Creative AFK Grind, you can put your character in the never-ending loop on the map to stay active. After 75 minutes, you should have all of the XP banked and can pull your character out. This method should only be used if you are able to run the game AFK for a little while, it should not be used as a primary XP source.


In Fortnite Season 8, punchcards appear to have replaced weekly and daily quests. Each NPC has a punchcard and you can interact with them to get the ball rolling. Each NPC punchcard has 5 stages with XP increasing after each stage.

Punchcards are more efficient than the previous weekly quests

There are also daily and weekly punchcards to help keep the XP rolling. Completing these should only take a few quick sessions for the weekly and maybe one or two games for the daily.


Party Assist

Playing squad-based game modes with friends and completing quests that are party-assist enabled will help build XP incredibly fast. This is because the actions of your whole team count towards the missions and thus you can complete them faster.

With quests updating in-game now, you can complete more quests for each match that you play. Having teammates just speeds this process up even further.

In-Game Actions

There are certain actions to can carry out in-game to earn some additional XP. These aren't going to level you up super fast, but add up if you're able to claim them. Actions like being the first to land, first elimination etc. all earn bonus XP.

Just get the dub, we believe in you

Naturally, the better you do in games, the better your positional XP will be as well. Eliminations of course come with XP but taking certain actions early in a match can add to this.
